Forgotten & Fantastic 1963 Stirling Moss Interview

This largely unknown 1963 film documents the career of Stirling Moss, who at 89 years of age remains the greatest Formula One driver to never win a championship, as well as a vital and enthusiastic ambassador for all things motorsport.

Already two years into retirement at the time, a young and charming Moss–who wouldn’t become “Sir” until 2000–interviews with American sports journalist Bud Palmer, much of it filmed through the windshield of an early MGB as the pair drive top-down through London to a jacket-and-tie lunch. The two seem to have a natural rapport, and Moss really opens up regarding his driving style and car choices, his relationship with manufacturers, his emulation of Fangio, his friendly rivalry with Graham Hill and much more, interspersed with historical racing footage and additional interviews of his contemporaries such as John Cooper.

Filmed in color and running ~26 minutes, this wonderful piece of history provides rare insight and context into the personality, accomplishments and failures of one of the all-time greats, and with just a few hundred views at the time of writing, appears to have been largely forgotten by time.
